Born and raised in Brazil, Dr. Alex Frade’s illustrious dental career has taken him from a Dentist and Lieutenant in the Brazilian Army, to The Dental Director in the pediatric department of the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. Dr. Frade then created The Marin Center for Aesthetic Dentistry. Here, he specializes in dental implants, extractions, bone grafting, restorative and aesthetic dentistry.
Dr. Frade restores smiles with custom zirconia veneers and dental implants along with taking the time to educate patients how to properly brush and floss their teeth so they remain strong and healthy.
Implants are a tooth replacement option that involves placing a new “root” into the bone of your jaw. Once this titanium “root” has infused with your bone it can be used to support a crown, bridge or denture. These implants can also be used to replace partials and other forms of dentures. The success rate for dental implants are extremely high and is due in part to the fact that root-form implants are made of a biocompatible material, titanium.
Dental Implants have now become the standard for replacing older dentistry and missing teeth because they look and feel like your natural teeth and have a higher success rate than all other forms of tooth replacement. The initial cost is generally higher for an implant over other forms of tooth replacement, but the long term benefits easily outweigh the difference in additional cost.
